New York City Metro chapter: Ben Goldacre
02/20/13 New York, NY
Ben Goldacre (@bengoldacre), a physician, is author of the best-selling book "Bad Science" and the new book "Bad Pharma," which is already making waves around the globe. Goldacre's website says he specializes in "unpicking dodgy scientific claims from drug companies, newspapers, government reports, PR people and quacks. Unpicking bad science is the best way to explain good science." Goldacre has been writing the Bad Science column in the Guardian since 2003, has been interviewed by many news outlets and even performs at comedy clubs. His latest campaign, his biggest ever, is AllTrials.net, which is seeking to have all clinical trials registered, all summary results reported, and full Clinical Study Reports made publicly available.
